First kiss

one day,

a day I will keep in memory

we went to the beach

in a friendly moonlit night

the moon was just descending,

about to disappear into the sea


we were alone

you were fooling and kidding around

letting me forget how afraid I was,

making me laugh


an embrace,

very close

how frightened I was, knowing your desire

your lips getting closer to mine

still the fears in my heart

but love and hope returned when

you kissed me the first time


a kiss so sweet and delicate at first

the passion did not let it end

and stirred a fire within us


after that night I was not quite the same,

shy fearful girl

now that I am in love

always wanting more of your sweet kisses
